TransputerIn the mid and late 80\'s a company called Inmos developed and produced a processor designed for parallel operation. Each chip was a complete computer including on board memory. Each chip had 4 high speed serial links which could be connected directly to other Transputers. Inmos have developed a parallel processing language called Occam. Inmos got run over by Intel and the X86 steamroller. The concept is somewhat similar to the Cell.
